So, it turns out that the VONA deadline was extended to March 15th. Here’s the press release regarding my workshop:
Attention, Writers of Color, Writers of Popular Fiction– Romance, Mystery; Urban Fantasy. Take a workshop with Marjorie Liu this summer. The VONA/Voices Workshop presents the Popular Fiction– Romance, Mystery; Urban Fantasy workshop for Writers of Color.

I’m still in Japan. I’ll be posting more about the trip, but for the moment here are some photos from the other day: a nighttime shot of Tokyo from the 52nd floor of the Mori, along with part of an exhibit there — and a subway portrait. I’ve been enjoying snapping shots from the train. You can see a lot more photos from Tokyo on my instagram account — updated daily.
